which multiplier

Post by korky on Sun 11 Jan - 20:36

well lads,thinking of chancing a multiplier,not sure what to buy,with level wind or without,looking for something very reliable mainly for beach use,any advice would be appreciated as i know nothing about these reels,an old friend of mine called lately and gave me his centurty carbon metal,she is rung for multiplier and i would like to give it a go,i can only use left hand wind,does that limit my options?

Being left handed will limit your choice as not all the popular models are made with LH wind AFAIK? Abu and shimano do, with ABU possibly doing the best range. Level wind will restrict your distance but as you are only starting with a multiplier, distance will be the least of your problems. It will take a long time to get used to any multiplier and only with practise will you get used to it. You will probably have to order a left model of what you need but if you look up the web you will see what is available. Talk to lots of people and you will get many opinions on what is best. IMO a fixed spool is far more reliable and dependable, no birds nests easy to use etc etc but to each his own. Talk to someone who is able to master a multi and they will tell you that it is the easiest of all reels to use. When you decide what you want come back with the list and you can ask what is the best then. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hi korky
Sharky has given you some good advice there,if you are going to start off with a multiplier i would recommend starting off with a Diawa 7 ht Millionaire this can be used straight out of the box not sure if you can get left-handed it is a very dependable reel and is not prone to bird nests,on the fix spool side a gruavle zeus 5000 is excellent hope this helps you.
